Help the Gulf by Going Out Tonight


When catastrophe strikes, relief efforts often include concerts to raise awareness, funds, active support, or all three. Such is the case tonight, as a series of Gulf Coast Benefit Concerts will take place across the nation to bring some relief to Gulf Coast area fishermen and wildlife affected by the oil gusher. The event's organizers—a collective of music industry insiders and social entrepreneurs—hope to raise $500,000 for the Gulf Restoration Network through in-kind donations and ticket sales from the dozens of music venues in cities across the country hosting these GCB concerts.
